Dallas Cowboys offensive coordinator Jason Garrett returned to Dallas on Wednesday to mull over his decision whether to accept head coaching positions in Atlanta or Baltimore, and has ultimately chosen to stay in Dallas according to the AJC. Garrett had interviewed for a second time with the Falcons on Wednesday a day after doing the same with the Baltimore Ravens.
According to a Baltimore Sun report which reiterate previous reports, the Falcons look like they will opt to re-open the coaching search instead of settling on candidate Rex Ryan. Ryan is the only other candidate to interview a second time in Atlanta, and along with Garrett and Indianapolis Colts assistant Jim Caldwell was widely considered to be among the Falcons final three choices. But Caldwell removed his name from contention yesterday and will remain in Indianapolis.
There have been no candidates named as likely to interview with the Falcons now. However, the team has previously tried to interview New York Giants defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo, but were denied due to the Giants still remaining active in the playoffs. If the Giants would lose to the Green Bay Packers this weekend, Spagnuolo would become available.
